about

I wrote this song when I realized that you can't run away from your past. You have to acknowledge it, work through it and then become a better person from it. The character of the song hasn't gotten there yet.

lyrics

The Smell of Roses Makes me Wild
The sound of Bees alone, can make me cry just like a child
I can’t explain it, but all my fears are more than mild

Goodbye yesterday, I’ve got to throw my past away
The ghost’s lead me astray. So I’m Losing Yesterday. Losing Yesterday

They say defenses can block the mind
And what I do recall, well, it’s all been less than kind
You say confront my fears, I’m better off deaf, dumb and blind

Goodbye yesterday, I’ve got to throw my past away
The ghost’s lead me astray. So I’m Losing Yesterday. Losing Yesterday

I don’t need to recall. I don’t need you to help me relive yesterday
In time, it will go away.

Don’t say the bark is less than the bite
Because I dream of dogs that hunt me down throughout the night
You say control my fears, but I’m afraid I’ll lose the fight

Goodbye yesterday, I’ve got to throw my past away
The ghost’s lead me astray. So I’m Losing Yesterday. Losing Yesterday

I don’t need to recall. I don’t need you to help me relive yesterday
In time, it will go away.

Don’t say the bark is less than the bite
Because I dream of dogs that hunt me down throughout the night
You say control my fears, but I’m afraid I’ll lose the fight

Goodbye yesterday, I’ve got to throw my past away
The ghost’s lead me astray. So I’m Losing Yesterday
Goodbye yesterday, I’ve got to throw my past away
The ghost’s lead me astray. So I’m Losing Yesterday
Losing Yesterday Losing Yesterday Losing Yesterday
